The Sanus WMS5 wall mounts come in a kit with five mounts. Each of the mounts tilts and swivels so you can adjust the speakers for optimum sounds. Each mount is 1.25" W x 3.25" H x 1.25" D. The kit includes the mounting hardware and will hold speakers up to 8-pounds. The package of five is about $60 direct from Sanus.
When I installed my new home theater in the media room of my house, I didn’t want the speakers down low where my kids would knock them over. I wanted to put them on the wall. When you wall mount speakers you can either drop the cable down from the attic or run the wire up the corner of your room and then cover it with a cover or just leave the wire as is.
I chose to come from the attic in my application. The speaker mounts are easy to mount and they come with all the hardware you need. You will need to provide the screwdriver, drill, and a 1/8" drill bit for stud installation. Installation involved using a drill to drill into a stud and then mounting the mount arm. The kit does come with little anchors for dry wall and masonry mounting as well.
The thing I like best about the Sanus WMS5 mounts is that they are highly articulated. They allow you to position the speaker to aim directly where you want the sound to go. Some mounts only allow you to adjust the angle up or down, but the Sanus WMS5 have a swivel and tilt option with covers to hide the hardware when mounted. To mount the speakers to the Sanus WMS5 wall mounts you use the hardware that is included to attach the mount to the back of your speakers using the screw mount holes. If your speakers lack the screw in mount holes you will have to devise another way to mount your speakers.
You can use the Sanus WMS5 to mount your speakers to the ceiling as well. You can get these in black or silver colors. The black version is what I used. I have a 7.1 surround sound system, though I only use it as a 5.1 system. If you are using 7.1 speakers, you will need two kits to have enough mounts.
The Sanus WMS5 wall mounts for speakers work perfectly in my application and if you don’t want speakers sitting on your floor or a shelf, these will probably work just as well for you.
